Stan McCown

Biography

Stan McCown was born in Texas but as a member of a military family, lived all over the country and North Africa, which brought him a comfort zone with new places. After serving in the Air Force, including a stint on a missile crew in Okinawa, he ended up in Seattle, but has traveled widely since.

Stan has written two complete novels, but having heard tales of ancestors in the Civil War, and after taking up in intense interest in history, he has also written a non-fiction work called The Awful Arithmetic, which is presented in two volumes due to its size. One of the two novels, Allegheny Road, is set during the Civil War on the exact same land Stan’s ancestors occupied in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia from 1749 to 1782.

Two more novels are soon to come, as well as a further non-fiction work on the “lost chances” of the Civil War.
